April Fools!

Are you tired of the same old game of fetch? Running low on filthy, chewed-up tennis balls?

Wouldn’t it be nice to play something a bit more intellectually challenging with your pets?

Thanks to groundbreaking new technology invented by engineers, you can now challenge your furry, feathered, and finned companions to a game of online chess.

Pet experts have long known that playing chess improves animal intelligence and obedience, but until now owners had no way to actually compete with their pets over the 64 squares.

You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but you can definitely teach it a new opening.

With ChessForPet’s patented instructional videos and lessons, your pet will rapidly improve its rating.

If you own a dog, cat, bird, or fish, you’re ready to play! Just log on to, set up the board, and go. They can play against you, the computer, or even other pets.

And if your pet prefers to play with real pieces, we’ve got your covered too: our pet-friendly interface can connect to real chessboards and is fully slobber-proof.

Interfaces for hamsters, rodents, and reptiles are coming soon, so get ready to try out that Hedgehog on your pet hedgehog.

(Sorry, Sicilian fans. We’re still working on fireproofing the interface for dragons.)

Let us know if your pet checkmated you in the comments section or on Facebook
